0 - the Fool

A woman with a faraway look sings to herself and beats a drum while wandering near a cliff edge. A small dog jumps at her skirt, trying to warn her of the danger of which she seems unaware.

My Interpretation: Blissful ignorance.

Optimism, naive innocence. Disregard for potential risks. Foolishness and eccentricity, a wandering away from what society considers sane and normal. An unplanned and surprising influence may suddenly come to bear on the matter in question.

(Reversed: Disregard for potential risks, withdrawl from society, apathy, lack of action, negligence)

Edit notes: This card is similar to the Rider-Waite card, although their Fool is male, carrying a bundle on a pole, and on top of the world on a sunny day in the RWD. I think this is similar enough to be familiar to RWD readers though. More similar to RW than my original.
